Hotel Grimsborgir

Hotel Grimsborgi is only a 45 minute drive from Reykjavik, and is a haven of tranquillity set against a stunning South Icelandic backdrop. You can travel just ten minutes to the 6,000 year-old volcanic crater Kerid, take a 20 minute drive to Thingvellir National Park or journey for around an hour to reach mighty Gullfoss waterfall and lively Strokkur geyser.

Housed in six stylish holiday homes, the hotel’s ten luxury apartments accommodate between four and nine people each and are therefore ideal for families and groups, as well as couples seeking a secluded romantic break. Depending on the room grade chosen, guests can enjoy a spacious, well-appointed apartment with kitchen, living room and dining area, as well as barbecue and private outdoor hot tub on the terrace overlooking the beautiful mountainous landscape.

The elegant Grimsborgir Restaurant offers gourmet food and typical Icelandic dishes all prepared with fresh, local produce. With tasty traditional soups, delicious locally-sourced fish, meat and vegetarian options, plus indulgent cakes and desserts on the menu, booking a three course meal during your stay is a must. All breads and pastries are freshly baked every day onsite, and the delicious hot or cold breakfast is the ideal way to start the day.

Situated far from the light pollution of Iceland’s major towns, the Grimsborgir provides a wonderful winter setting to await a performance of the elusive aurora borealis; sit back in your hot tub under a clear night sky as the incredible neon lights dance overhead.
